It was the second of two nights in which two tours of metal bands of many different varieties converged into a seven-band show. Before entering the Upstate Concert Hall, I had the grand opportunity to speak with band members under the Century Media record label.
It was the second of two nights in which two tours of metal bands of many different varieties converged into a seven-band show. Before entering the Upstate Concert Hall, I had the grand opportunity to speak with band members under the Century Media record label. The first one was none other than Mikael Stanne, vocalist of Dark Tranquillity. We have some speed metal, some thrash metal, and us. It was crazy yesterday because it was their first day of their tour, so hopefully today it goes a little smoother.
And while record sales are going down it seems people are still buying vinyl. How has Anders been as your new bassist?
We grew up together in the same suburb outside of Gothenburg. He started in a band pretty much the same time we started. Of course his brother Peter I knew very well and played with in In Flames. Finally we get to tour together and share the stages together. How did you cope recording an album without Martin for the first time? The recording was kind of difficult.
That reinforced our passion for music and passion for playing. So it ended up being a positive thing for us even though it was difficult at first. It was a rough recording for a while for sure. What are some good relatively new bands coming out of Gothenburg today? In terms of new bands. There are a bunch of cool bands that I like.
And what I love is that there are so many genres. Some of the best bands of each of these genres are from my hometown. Like Monolord, I listen to a lot. I like Blues Pills which is totally different but amazing. Awesome band as well. We actually have two-fifths of them playing for us tonight. Maybe not as I do today.
But we did it on the first album, like we had a ballad that I sang on Skydancer. We considered, why not try this out a little bit. And then of course we did a little more of it on Projector in , which was a big change musically for us. Speaking of Skydancer, do you get requests for any songs from that album? Do you miss those songs or have you moved on? We always move on.
Even I played guitar back then. But as a band we always try to move forward and not dwell on the past. This is just insane. But of course, whoever is in charge affects the rest of the world, being from the most powerful country. But I remember how all of Europe reacted when Bush was president. How we all laughed at you guys, and now maybe we have to do it for another 4 years, if worse comes to worse.
What is your desert island album? But I think, Close to the Edge by Yes. And I still find new things that I love about it every time I listen to it. I remember walking into a record store where Anders works now. Been around forever, like the first record store I went to when I was a kid.
So that would be it.
